Texture and Anisotropy – 3-day course in September 2020
Due to the uncertainties related to the coronavirus pandemic we cannot be certain that the course will take place as planned. The registration is non-binding so please register if you are interested in the course and we will contact you in the first week of September to confirm your registration.
Aims of the course
The course aims to provide a good understanding of the nature of crystallographic texture (preferred crystallographic orientation), how it is measured and interpreted, and also how this controls the anisotropy of various properties in materials. It will contain a balance of theory, experimental practice and analysis in the form of lectures and exercises. Examples of concepts that will be covered during the course are given below. Let us know if you have special interest in a certain topic and we will do our best to find suitable material for you.
This course will, compared to previous sessions, have extra focus on modelling techniques for deformation and recrystallization texture as well as the use of neutron and synchrotron techniques for texture analysis.
Who should attend?
The course is aimed at users of electron back-scattered diffraction (EBSD) or x-ray/neutron diffraction techniques, as well as researchers working in physical and mechanical metallurgy and/or product development of metallic materials.
Example of concepts that will be covered
Definition and description of texture
Representation of textures
